196,200 - The number of times my feet will go around the pedals during the AIDS/LifeCycle ride.
545 - The number of miles between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
15 - The number of MPH I hope to achieve during the ride (as optimistic as that may be).
7 - The number of days that the ride runs (June 2 - June 8).
$500,000 - The number of dollars Team PwC hopes to raise.
37,600 - The number of new HIV infections in the US each year (CDC, 2014)
Last year, the AIDS/LifeCycle ride raised over $15 million to benefit the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Funds raised support AIDS/HIV prevention, education, treatment, and support. The SF AIDS Foundation and LA LGBT Center are two of many organizations that work tirelessly to reduce that number from above (37,600) and I, as an avid cyclist, want to do my part this year, which brings me to one last number.
$5,000 - As a member of Team PwC, I've set a personal fundraising goal of $5,000 for the AIDS/LifeCycle ride. Every dollar that you contribute goes towards this great cause while also helping me earn my ticket to ride!
Thank you, and I sincerely hope that you will donate.
